ICC chairman Fady Asly plans to send an official letter to about 6 million investors, members of International Chamber of Commerce (ICC).
The letter will describe the threats that exist before business commencement in Georgia. Fady Asly told the Analytics that tens of domestic and international business companies suffer from pressure in Georgia and it is their moral responsibility to notify international investors about these threats. Fady Asly has given a time up to October 2017 to resolve the problem.
“When Bidzina Ivanishvili met with businessmen on October 5, 2012, he said: we do not want that previous cases be repeated; do not endure pressure, never let anybody blackmail you. If you learn about similar cases, come and tell us”. All these promises turned out fraud, because after October 5 everything returned to its ordinary condition. Therefore, we have decided to take our won decisions.
It is impossible to invite investors and at the same time, to ruin domestic and foreign businesses. We will not endure this. If in two months, before October, these issues are not resolved, we will send official letter to about 6 million investors of ICC to warn them about threats in Georgia for business inauguration. All investors will receive special notifications.
If these problems have not been resolved by the first week of October, all investors in the world will be notified about business climate problems in Georgia. This is enough time for Government of Georgia to set control over the situation. There are tens of companies that suffer from pressure.
This attitude towards the business should change. Gangsters, who manage these processes today must be punished. Therefore, without these steps, ICC has the moral responsibility to warn our member companies about the current risks for commencement of business in Georgia”, Fady Asly told the Analytics.
